No, you are matching a scrawny 185 pound man against a monstrous 220 pound man. Tunney would look silly in there. And just about everyone Tyson fought had height and reach advantages. I think it's safe to say that Tunney's few advantages would quickly become a non-issue as soon as the quick-footed Tyson closed the gap.
